"Cantaloupe Levels provides you with more than what you'd expect. First and foremost, the view is phenomenal. Located on top of a hill, the hotel is first of its kind in Sri Lanka, basking a 3-floor structure with 9 luxury rooms. The hotel overlooks the Unawatuna Bay, providing you spectacular insight to the stunning beach landscape of the South. The view; both invites you to go down to the beach and bathe in its warm waters yet eludes you, so you'd rather watch its beauty from a distance. Another unique factor at Levels is it's tranquility; even though its location is prime property, it is the only hotel there and it is surrounded by beautiful lush greenery for miles. Thus enhancing your experience with a mix of adventure and serenity. The suites are grand and extend luxurious comfort; soft feather pillows, ultra-soothing mattress, Egyptian cotton linen, fresh simplistic bathroom with jacuzzi jets and rain-shower, his and her sinks. And the list of amenities are endless. The staff are friendly, pleasant and most importantly, obliging. The private concierge went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of (kudos Nuwan). Love the tri-colour pool. The breakfast menu is delectable with Continental, American and Sri Lankan options to select from, unfortunately didn't have the opportunity to have lunch or dinner there. All in all, great experience, beautiful hotel. Hats off Cantaloupe&Co on its creativity and class!! "

"We really enjoyed and recommend the Dunes Unawatuna hotel. The Sri Lankan owner spent a number of years living in Australia and has made sure this newly built hotel has good Western standards - quite a difference to other places we've stayed in Sri Lanka. The staff were friendly and attentive, we enjoyed the food, and the beach is great for swimming, running, and a range of good restaurants with tables on the beach."

"my girlfriend and i stayed at thaproban beach house on new years eve 2012. pricey by sri lanka standards we got a decent room with an average view but great bathroom. the door on the room needed fixing and i think i could open it with a ice cream stick. the ac worked well but the wifi was down when we stayed. the price included a gala dinner - unfortunately we couldn't stay there without taking the new year feast option, which was great so we didn't mind. location wise you can't get better - it's at the quiet end of unawatuna beach. by that i mean you have maybe 15-20m to walk along the beach before you hit your first restaurant/bar...perfect. where thaproban beach house really excels is service. nuvvani on the front desk was fantastic and went out of her way to help us out. i had a problem with the powerpoints and she had someone at my room in under a minute. i also had to do some unscheduled travel and she arranged the hotel car to take me immediately. by the way, their driver is excellent and i'd definitely recommend using him to go between unawatuna and colombo if training isn't an option for you.

"Really decent hotel. Would highly recommend. The rooms are very clean and spacious, some rooms even have jacuzzi. The view is just amazing:you can swim in the pool and watching the waves breaking on the huge rocks. If you want to swim - main Unawatuna beach is just few minutes walking distance. The breakfasts and food from menu a la carte were delicious. Try their pizza - awesome (which is rare on Sri Lanka). Though its not that cheap but it worth it. I found this place comfortable for anyone: couples can enjoy romantic view, dinner and jacuzzi and spa; families with kids can use kids playing room and swimming pool, which has space for kids also; group of friends can chill out in sport bar watching sports on big screen, playing billiard, darts or fuzball. Would definitely like to come here again. "

"My friend and I stayed here for 6 nights in a pool Pavillion room and we had the most incredible stay. The hotel was lovely and in a great setting next to the sea and only a short walk to the gorgeous beach! The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated. The pool area was great and so relaxing! The food was fab, breakfast was very good and we ate dinner here twice and had the most incredible sea food! Finally the staff were amazing, incredibly friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble to arrange. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking at hotels in unawatuna. This hotel will not disappoint!! Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

"We stayed one night at Hotel J. The hotel is brand new and I believe that this was a soft opening. The Rooms had everything you needed and the beds were super comfortable. The Rooms however, were not cleaned out perfectly. There was dust on the bathroom floor and the counters and residue from the construction. I believe, this was due to the fact that it was a soft opening, but if the rooms were given out, it should have been cleaned thoroughly. The staff, were very helpful, and the Wi-Fi was great. The food offered was priced well, and the quality of food was OK. The hotel is not a beach front property, but it is located close to the action points. A 10 minute walk (1km ) will take you to Welle Dewala Road where all the action points are. Overall, Hotel J is true value for money in Unawatuna. "

Their environmentally friendly approach is one of the important points that I LOVED!! The prices are really good! And the most important - SERVICE IS AMAZING! People who work here are the BEST! You will definitely feel like you are home! :)"

"My partner and I stayed at this hotel for four nights in July during our 2.5 wk stay in Sri Lanka. The room we had booked was one of the ocean privilege suites and wow what a room it was, one of the best we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world!! It was very big and had a full wall of glass overlooking the fabulous private beach and across to Galle. The bathroom was amazing complete with Jacuzzi. We were given a pillow menu and soap menu on arrival which were nice touches. The sun loungers on the beach were really fabulous and gave that extra touch. The breakfasts were very good, not buffet, but served to order with plenty of options. We had lunch and dinner on a number of occasions during our stay and again the food was fabulous. We had a BBQ on the beach one night and this was a real treat. The staff at the hotel were amazing and couldn't do enough for you! The hotel is just a five/ten minute tuk tuk ride from Unawatuna beach and jungle beach which are beautiful. Galle town is only a ten minute trip and the fort walls are an amazing sight in the evening as the sun sets. There are plenty of excellent restaurants scattered around the old town. On the downside, the pool is very small & uninviting. It was monsoon when we were there and when an occasional shower came, the noisy metal roller doors surrounding the front of the restaurant had to be closed, making the place look like an industrial building. Overall we had an amazing stay at this hotel and would recommend it as one of the best boutique hotels not only in Sri Lanka, but anywhere! "
